I find myself in charge of...

the Greyhound Family Shelter cause once again. Except this time I'm in charge of everything. It's for Easter and we are thinking about casseroles for all of the bungalows to cut down on some of the cost. I've applied for a grant at our neighborhood grocery store and won't find out about that for six weeks. I'm hoping they can help because unlike Christmas, we aren't getting any donations in at all. And out of the 19 bungalows, we have only seven people signed up so far. And three of those are me. We have to collect use, but in good condition backpacks, either adult or children's. The next thing up is gently used stuffed animals. I've been to all of the thrift stores, but so far, nothing. The food alone, we are covering ourselves, but we need to fill the back packs with pencils, notebooks and Easter goodies. I'm not sure yet, but each of my bungalows might have four children. This is going to break me. Antoinette said that God doesn't give us more than we can handle. But I'm not getting any help whatsoever. If you know anyone that would be willing to donate for these things, I would appreciate hearing from them. I would offer to pay postage for boxes of things. Any help coming our way would be greatly appreciated. :) Just send me an email to PattRose1 at aol dot com for my address. Or you could leave me a message here. Thank you all for listening to my plea and not throwing things at the computer, hoping something will get through and attack me. LOL Happy Sunday.

Thank you for listening to me ramble.

Hugs, Patt

Do you have paypal, Patt, or should I send you a check?

You're a good woman, and I'm sorry you're having such a hard time this time around.

It shouldn't all be left on your shoulders, Patt. You'll end up too worn out to do anything. *hugs*

Do you have a PayPal account? I can donate a bit in a week's time.

ETA: I just saw your reply to Tinnean. I'll send what I can. ♥

Would you prefer money through Paypal or for us to hit the dollar store for pencils, notebooks and Easter stuff and ship it to you? We can do whichever works better for you.
